I've been waiting for this game FOR YEARS

however the $20 price tag (great because I'm cheap) has me worried this game won't be longer than 30 minutes

But what if I could tempt you with a DRM free version on GoG? You could burn it to a disc and play it forever, license free!

OK this went from wait and see to day 1 for me.

Also coming to Linux and Mac although not immediately from what I understand.

But this a definitely a title I would get via XPA but a gog version is also tempting.

This. I'm honestly not even expecting a good game, but the art is breathtaking. And I don't usually care about graphics that much.

Cool, it feels like it's been in development for a long time - maybe they just previewed it earlier than most do.

Anyway, looks like the game to play / watch a stream of while stoned.

For as long as it's been in development, I thought it was an AAA title and would be priced accordingly.

Interesting

You also have to do ridiculous stuff like animating every single frame of a rotating object, rather than relying on a single frame and rotating it in engine.

For the actual characters, we mimic the "rubber hose" look of the era, which is all the noodley arms and legs. The characters also generally bounce to an unheard beat instead of standing still.

Hand painting the backgrounds helps too.

Definitely mentioned some stuff I wasn't aware of. Thanks for putting in so much work to make a game that looks unlike any other, and perfectly captures the feel of the old popeye and disney cartoons I grew up on as a small child (that freaked me the hell out sometimes tbh). You guys are peers among the animators of those old timey cartoons as far as I'm concerned, and went above and beyond what I ever would've expected for a game with this visual style. Digging what I've seen of the the Contra-esque gameplay as well! Can't wait to play it in Sept.

My opinion that this is an ultimate wait and see game. It most definitely could be amazing, but to pre-order based on what we've seen so far, I don't know.

I played cuphead at sdcc 2015, it's been a long time coming

Was always a fan of the boss rush concept, could have added levels later or as an expansion but eh

Steam? Wow. I was expecting this to be a Windows 10 store exclusive.

Also, $20 bucks is a great price, I'll be picking this up on the Xbox One come September.

Teeth, I was just talking to my friend about how crazy it is that this game is only $20. I don't know the full length, but knowing the animation process and seeing the content from past videos, it already looked like a title I would have been more than willing to pay more for.

Usually the case is that I see a smaller studio's game, I think it looks like a neat concept worth pursuing and the price tag potentially takes me back a bit (usually $40 or more). Obviously, some have proven this caution more incorrect than others. So why and how only $20?

IMO they should go aggressively with all the merchandising possibilities since the game looks aesthetically cool.
